Emirates departs for Montréal

Emirates has departed for Montréal, its second gateway in Canada, making it the airline’s first passenger journey to the city. At 03:30 today, Emirates aircraft EK243 took off with over 340 people on board, including a VIP delegation and journalists.

The airline’s North American network now includes 14 destinations and a total of 18 across the Americas with the addition of the new daily route to Montréal, which complements Emirates’ seven weekly services to Toronto. Through Dubai, the route will connect travellers to Canada from places like Lebanon, India, Iran, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, and South Africa.

Direct flights between Dubai and Montréal are anticipated to be in high demand from a variety of demographic groups, including Canadians who live and work in the UAE and go there for business and pleasure as well as to see family and friends. The route is anticipated to become extremely popular with students from the Middle East, West and Central Asia, and the Far East because Montréal is home to many top-tier universities.

Adnan Kazim, the company’s chief commercial officer, Salem Obaidalla, its senior vice president of commercial operations for the Americas, and David Broz, its vice president of aeropolitical and industry affairs, were among the Emirates executives on board. The Canadian ambassador to the UAE, HE Radha Krishna Panday, was present at the airport to bid the delegation farewell.

Captain Talal Al Hammadi (UAE National), Captain David Reny (Canadian), First Officer Omar Alhammadi (UAE National), and First Officer Veljko Veljovic (Canadian) were in charge of the first flight to Montréal.

Emirates will fly a three-class Boeing 777-300ER on the trip, with 42 lie-flat seats in business class, over 300 roomy seats in economy class, and eight private suites in first class.
